Our SKILLS4LIFE CLASSES are available to adults in the community. IC3 Certification classes are offered throughout the year that provide the basic computer skills necessary to pass the IC3 exam. These courses along with others navigate through basic computing, the internet and Microsoft Office skills. We also serve the community by offering occasional parenting classes and anxiously await the arrival of nutrition workshops, English classes and career planning. We will begin intermediate and advance computer classes in the near future.
Powered Up Computer Learning Lab
Our computer learning lab is built on an awareness that the world is increasingly developing into a technology –based society and the belief that nobody should be denied access to technology. Families with computers and internet access at home have an advantage over those who do not have these tools. Arrow Community Center desires to reach out to those neighbors who lack access to computers and offer them the chance to be participants, rather than spectators, in the information revolution.
GRIND Skatepark offers a supervised place for teens and young people to hang out and have fun. Positive relationships are built with mentors and leaders that we hope will make a difference in the many families of our neighborhood. The Skatepark opened in November 2002 and is currently providing a supervised place for teens and young kids to hang out 3 days a week. We’ve dedicated a fenced portion of our parking lot to ramps. The skaters have a great time. The GRIND staff and other volunteers are building relationships that we hope will make a difference in many families of our neighborhood.
